Seattle, WA (CNN) — An enthusiastic Seattle Seahawks fan is hoping his gut feeling about the team is correct, since he may have to live with it for a long time.
At the beginning of the season, Tim Connors got a Seattle Seahawks tattoo, but not just any tattoo. Connors was so confident that Seattle would win the Super Bowl that he got a tattoo declaring the Seahawks the champions of the upcoming 2014 Super Bowl.
At the beginning of the football season, it would have been easy to call him crazy, but Connors says "I'm not crazy. I'm not crazy at all. There's no tiny little bit of doubt at all anywhere in my head."
So far, so good.
The Seahawks face the San Francisco 49ers this weekend in the NFC Championship game. If the Seahawks win their next two games, they'll verify Connor's confidence. Because they've gotten so far, Connor's tattoo artist is now offering discounted Seahawks tattoos through the end of the playoffs.
The NFC Championship game airs Sunday at 1:00 p.m. on our sister station, Local 4 News.
